Halmon Entering the Home Stretch

Bamberg (S.C.) Bamberg-Ehrhardt defensive back Nicholas Halmon is one of the top defensive backs in South Carolina. He is focused on four schools and has one official visit set.

Bamberg-Ehrhardt had a good season in 2012. Senior Nicholas Halmon was one of the team's leaders and played a big role in the Bamberg-Ehrhardt's success.

"The season went really well," he said. "I missed the first two games because I had a virus, but it went really well. We went undefeated in the regular season, but lost to Silver Bluff in the third round of the playoffs."

One the recruiting front, Halmon is focused on four schools.

"Right now, I'm still looking at some schools," said Halmon. "Recruiting is going pretty well. I'm still considering Kentucky, East Carolina, UNC-Charlotte, and Wake Forest. UNC-Charlotte has offered and I'm sending my senior film to the other three schools soon. East Carolina and UNC-Charlotte are my top two schools."

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Halmon has one official visit scheduled and is working on setting up more.

"I'm working on setting up my official visits," he said. "The only one I have right now is UNC-Charlotte on January 18. I'm in the process of trying to set up one to East Carolina. I would also like to take officials to Kentucky and Wake Forest."

He knows what he will be looking for on his trips.

"I've just looking for a place where I feel comfortable," Halmon said. "I want to go to a school that has a family atmosphere and somewhere that the coaches treat me well."

When will he make his decision?

"Signing Day is right around the corner, so I'll probably make my decision then," he said.

Despite missing the first two games, Halmon finished the season with 72 tackles, two interceptions, and 11 pass breakups.
